Escaramuza: Riding from the Heart (Episode #102H)

KQED Life: Fri, Sep 30, 2016 -- 10:00 PM

Las Azaleas are a gutsy team of women rodeo riders vying to represent the US at the National Charro Championships in Mexico - where "to be Charro is to be Mexican." Escaramuza, or skirmish, describes both the daredevil horseback ballets, ridden sidesaddle at top speed, and the intensity of the competition season. Neither life-altering challenges at home nor cartel violence across the border can keep Las Azaleas from their goal.

Lemon (Episode #104H)

KQED Plus: Tue, Sep 13, 2016 -- 11:00 PM

When Lemon Andersen held a Tony Award in his hands for his work in Russell Simmons' Def Poetry Jam on Broadway, it was close to a miracle. This poet/performer was a three-time felon who'd achieved more than anyone could have ever imagined. But when the show closed, he lost everything and moved his wife and two small daughters back to the projects. In desperation, he turned to the only thing he had left - his pen and his past. Lemon follows one man's journey to bring his life story to the New York stage while battling his darkest demons.
